Auction Report – H & H Auctions

Given that the overwhelming majority of British sports car production in the postwar era went to fill export orders, these cars are typically more valued in their land of creation than they are here in the United States. As such, it’s always helpful to check prices across the pond to see how the market is…

Auction Report – A Tale of the MG TD x 3

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity.”  The words were written by Charles Dickens to describe the plight of the French peasantry but very easily could…

TD Diary

By John and Brenda Almonte My wife and I have always wanted to own a classic sports car….actually, “another” classic sports car. When I met Brenda in the Fall of 1980 we used to drive around in a 1976 MGB that I had owned since 1977. We had our first date in that car in September…

Ahhh, a TD in the Fall

A roadster can provide relief from muggy weather. It can transform a tedious errand into a little adventure, but there are considerations: Seats that roast buns, temperature gauges that threaten, carbs that boil, insects and haze—all of these can be the ingredients that are the makings of adventure. I prefer a temperate autumn day, clear…

Facial Hair Not Required

I walked around the car show feeling very out of my element. Of course I am a HUGE car fan and my family complains endlessly about my obsession of the show Top Gear (the UK version of course—the others are just lame), but I only have a brain full of facts about cars going back…

Tonks’ Toys: MGs Across the Valley

About 33 years ago, Don Don Tonks wanted a Model A Ford. He came across a Morris Garage machine during that quest. Now 82 years old, Don has never owned a Model A, but he’s collected quite a few MGs. Some of the cars came to Don in boxes, while others came as rollers. While…

Export or Die

The first car I ever sat in may have been an MG. However, I can say with complete confidence that the first car I ever saw was an MG—an MG TA back in 1938, when my father took me to the Abingdon Works on a British bank holiday. The factory was open so that families…

Tech Tips: Summer 1998

Here’s a time-saving and cheap idea that is sure to help out any British car owner when working in his/her garage. Simply save an egg carton and use it as a separator/part holder to hold small parts and keep them organized. There is no cheaper container with as many compartments! Also I use a soft-bristled…

At Full Chat: Fall 1995

Recently, when I was asked for a description of the MG TC’s place in automotive history, a response was easy: “If it weren’t for this car, I would probably be in a different line of work.” No other car could have captured the American market the way this jaunty sportster did right after WW II….

At Full Chat: Winter 1994

I recently came across the invoice from Perry Fina for that wonderful cast aluminum, three branch “cut out” exhaust system he sold me for my first MG TD, the green RHD car that got me hooked on this addiction that dictated the course of my life. Among other activities, Fina’s mid-Manhattan garage served as the…
